Smith, Gilford (16 JUN 1840 - 29 MAY 1910)

Died, on Sunday night at five o'clock, Gilford Smith, at the age of seventy years, of yellow jaundice.

The deceased was born on June 16, 1840 in the southern part of the state and came to Clark County, Wis. in 1870 and purchased eighty acres of the old Happy Hutchins homestead and settled on it. Five years later he was married to Miss Mary Brassure of Hartford, who died about twelve years ago. He left the farm and rented it several years ago and moved to this village.

He is gone. Another name is stricken from the ever-lessening roll of our old soldiers. He met most of the conditions and situations of life with a joke. He was a matter-of-fact man, but had his own peculiar way of extracting merriment from life as it went Along, and he was not disposed to worry about matters that could be bettered in other ways.

His remains were taken to Hartford on Tuesday morning and laid beside that of his wife. Arthur Darton of the town of Beaver, Clark County accompanied the remains.
